A man was injured in a shooting in the Northeast D.C. neighborhood of Brentwood, not far from the scene where two men were shot over the weekend, according to police reports.

Investigators do not believe the two shootings, which injured three men late Tuesday, are related, Fifth District Cmdr. Andrew Solberg said.

“We’re still investigating, but nothing would lead us to conclude a relationship between them,” Cmdr. Solberg said in an email.

Tuesday’s shooting happened in the 1200 block of Brentwood Road in Northeast just after 11 p.m. A man suffered a graze wound to the back after an someone fired at him, police said.

On Sunday, two men suffered multiple gunshot wounds during a shooting in the 1300 block of Saratoga Avenue Northeast, just around the corner from the site of Tuesday’s attack. One man was shot twice in the back and the other was shot in the leg and arm, police said. No further information was available about their conditions on Wednesday.
